Se equivocaron estos empresarios


I wrote last week about my firm belief that the movements for social justice in Latin America have turned the tide, and that even where the Right appears to be holding strong or advancing, their gains will be short-lived. This doesn’t mean that they’ll give up. In fact, as they come to realize their power is eroding and feel threatened, they’ll fight even harder to preserve their illegitimate privilege.

Berta Cáceres, leader of COPINH, the Consejo Cívico de Organizaciones Populares e Indígenas de Honduras (Civic Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras), has been ordered to prison for her role in mobilizations against the Agua Zarca hydroelectric project.

"Me mantengo con la frente en alto y con toda dignidad: les digo que se equivocaron estos empresarios al pensar que el pueblo Lenca frenara su lucha histórica en defensa de los bienes comunes,” Cáceres told Radio Globo.
